Stand Up Paddle (or commonly known as SUP) is gaining a worldwide following as a low-impact, environmentally-friendly water sport that gives a great core body workout for practically anyone, both young and old.
Started in Hawaii in the 1960s amongst the surfing community, SUP has now spread across the globe – you can find enthusiasts on their SUP boards out in the oceans, rivers and lakes. SUP is not just constrained to one single discipline, we have seen the sport evolve into variations such as SUP yoga, SUP surfing, whitewater SUP, SUP racing and even SUP on land. In Singapore, SUP is fast gaining popularity as it is easy to learn and makes a great fun family activity. Our close proximity to beaches and availability of equipment on the market also makes it even more accessible.
